The State Government is preserving Victoria’s history, providing funding for the organisations at the heart of communities to research and showcase local history.

Minister for Government Services Gabrielle Williams announced last week that 42 organisations will share in $350,000 of funding from the State Government’s Local History Grants Program, confirming that the program will continue into 2025.

The projects include newspaper and photographic digitisation works, memorial websites, digital histories, oral histories, and archiving projects.

Taungurung Land and Waters Council was on the recipient list, receiving $13,545 to catalogue its Aboriginal heritage artefacts.

Ms Williams said the grants would celebrate the state’s history.

“The projects we are supporting through the Local History Grants Program will celebrate Victoria’s history and preserve it for future generations,” she said.

“Community groups across the state do important work showcasing our local history, and we are proud to support them through the Local History Grants Program.”

Public Record Office Victoria Director and Keeper of Public Records Justine Heazlewood said the grants kept Victoria’s history alive.

“For 22 years, the Local History Grants Program has ensured the stories and collections of Victoria’s history are not forgotten. We are pleased to see $350,000 shared among such worthy projects in 2024,” she said.

The State Government is supporting the next round of the Local History Grants Program and Victorian Community History Awards, with applications to open later this year.
